Since I'm on a roll with getting a new starter, and fuel issues fixed... Let's keep going!  If anyone knows where I can find an Allison HT740 in Texas, I'd be interested in hearing about it (price would be helpful too). I've got my favorite mechanic lined up and ready to lend a big hand...  It's going in a MCI MC7, so I'm going to need a shifter cable and T handle if one is out there too... Let the search begin!
Thanks All.

There was one on Ebay being sold by what sounded like Mike from BCM's past. Probably in California.

I have one still in an '85 MCI 96A3 w/blown engine! You can have everything you need off it.
Price negotiable especially if yer able to assist in removal of the parts you need!

Make offer!

B_K, I sent you a PM.   

Scanzel, I believe the transmission you're talking about PMed me already, it's in Bakersfield.  It's certainly an option, and if I can't find one here in Tx, it may be a viable option... Thanks for the tip though.

If you need to buy the flexplate new it will cost more than a used transmission for a 8v71 fwiw do the home work and get all the parts and always have a used 740 put on dyno the best 200 bucks you can spend


good luck

John, Where are you located? I'm close to San Antonio on I-35. I also have a 740 but it's set up for an 8-92. I have a 68 MC-7 that I'm going to be parting out if you need something from the exterior. I also have the trans cable that you can have if you need it.
